Who We Are
We are Christian, so we follow the teachings of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We are Orthodox, so we adhere to the faith represented in the early church many centuries ago. We are Coptic, which means that many of our traditions and practices are derived from our church’s origin in Egypt, the country that was blessed by the Holy Family’s visit and then St. Mark, the Apostle who established the church after the Ascension and receiving the Holy Spirit. We are a Church, which means we regularly partake in divinely-inspired services as a community
Is to be Spirit-filled church worshiping God in Spirit and in truth, winning people of all nations, diversities and backgrounds of life to the Holy Trinity and training them to become true disciples of Jesus Christ serving others through the Holy Sacraments of the church.
